Yon Egzèsis ki dire

Pandan tout lavi m ', Mwen te ale nan sezon lè m 've yo te reyèlman motive nan travay soti. Lè m 'te nan lekòl segondè mwen jis te vle fè frote ase yo enpresyone ti fi (mwen echwe). Nan dènye mwa ki anvan maryaj mwen an, mwen te ap eseye travay sou myèl kò plaj mwen. jou sa yo, Mwen jis ap eseye asire yo ke mwen ap viv sot pase ven mwen. motivasyon mwen te chanje sou ane yo, men sa ki pa te chanje se ki jan chanjan moun motivasyon yo.

Petèt w ap natirèlman motive nan travay soti-sèl rèl byen soti nan zanmi m 'ki afiche pics ak videyo nan rejim fòmasyon yo chak jou. Men, si w ap tankou m ', motivasyon ou ale leve, li desann tankou yon jenn ti kabrit sou yon tranpolin. E si rezilta yo nan travay ou soti te dire pou tout tan, menm si? Èske ou ta gen plis motive?

Travay di Peye Off

Pandan Olympics ivè mwa ki sot pase a mwen te nan tranble jan mwen gade zèklè bobsledders rapid ak highflying snobordeur. Mwen te enpresyone pa ekselans atletik yo, men mwen te menm plis enpresyone lè mwen te panse sou fòmasyon an disipline li dwe te pran yo ka resevwa gen.

Nan fen chak evènman lè atlèt yo viktorye te rete kanpe sou podium gayan an nan, ak bèl souri yo bese tèt yo ak meday repoze sou lestonmak yo, yo te rekolte benefis ki genyen nan fòmasyon yo. Men, dapre Bib la, gen nan yon kalite siperyè nan fòmasyon-pa paske fòmasyon fizik se vo anyen, men paske li nan limite.

Si ou te janm mande ki sa Bondye panse sou antrennman ou, isit la nan repons lan: Li panse li gen benefisye, men limite, valè. Se konsa, pandan w ap kouri, fè egzèsis, ak leve fè, rès nan konesans la ki li nan yon bon bagay yo fè. Kenbe kò ou nan fòm ki bon se louabl-menm ki gen bon konprann-men li la sèlman pral fè ou jwenn byen lwen tèlman.

Sa a se sa Apot Pòl la di Timote:

"Men, pa gen anyen fè ak mit ireveransyeuz ak komik. olye de sa, tren tèt ou nan Apa sèvi Bondye, pou fòmasyon an nan kò a gen yon benefis limite, men Apa sèvi Bondye se benefisye nan tout fason, depi li kenbe pwomès pou lavi sa a prezan epi tou pou lavi k ap vini." (1 Timote 4:7-8)

Nou te kapab sòm moute panse Pòl te bay sou ap travay sou tankou sa a: Fizik fòmasyon se yon bon bagay, men fòmasyon espirityèl se pi bon. Epi sa a, paske fòs fizik se pou yon ti tan, pandan y ap Apa sèvi Bondye se p'ap janm fini an. Lè Pòl chita pale sou "fòmasyon pou Apa sèvi Bondye" Mwen panse ke li vle di fè bagay sa yo ki fè ou espirityèlman pi fò. Sa vle di angaje nan aktivite yo ki fè ou plis sèvis Bondye ansanm. Petèt leve Bib nou an, se menm mwens dezirab pase leve yon pwa, men neglije sa vle di nou manke soti sou plis pase bon sante.

Pou tout tan se pi bon pase Yon Moman

Nou tout konnen ke lè yon bagay dire pi lontan li nan plis dezirab. Pa gen moun ki achte yon vwati konnen li pral kraze mwa ki suiv. Nou ta pito achte yon bagay ki dire yon ti tan, paske nou pral jwenn plis soti nan envestisman an. Men, si nou ap se konsa kalkile ak desizyon sou machin, ki jan pi plis kalkile nou yo ta dwe sou nanm nou?

Konbyen fwa ou panse sou letènite ou? Verite a se, nou ta dwe reflechi sou li pi plis pase nou fè. Gen nan pa gen kesyon ki tout moun nan nou pral viv pou tout tan; kesyon an se ki sa sa pou tout tan l'ap tankou. Se konsa, nou ta dwe fè envestisman kounye a, konnen ke konsekans yo pa janm pral fini.

Sa a ta dwe gen enpak sou sa nou konsantre sou nan jou an jou. Espò yo se bon, men yo pa ap tout bagay. fòs fizik ou a ka fè ou jwenn nan kolèj, men li pa pral fè ou jwenn nan syèl la. Ou ta dwe pran bon swen nan kò ou, men nou gen yon bagay weightier pran swen. Ki jan ki an sante se nanm ou?

Ki jan tren

Bondye pèmèt nou bati "nan misk espirityèl" lè nou kite ale nan peche ak gen tan pwan yon kenbe nan Jezi. Lè sa a, li voye nou nan jimnastik la. Li te nèg ban nou pawòl li, pèp li a, e menm zòrèy li. Se konsa an n li, di Bondye mèsi, epi priye. Atlèt tren difisil paske yo vle pou prepare pou jwèt la oswa matche ak devan yo nan yo. Yo vle yo dwe kapab fè konpetisyon nan yon nivo segondè.

Tout moun nan nou ap fè fas a tès espirityèl, esè, ak batay chak jou. Èske ou pare? Kotyèr pa travay pou atlèt ak li pa pral travay pou kretyen. lekti Labib ane pase a se pa ase yo kenbe siksè akademik ou ane sa a. Nou pral sèlman fè li nan maraton sa a pa favè Bondye a, men li prepare nou pou ras la nan fè egzèsis espirityèl nou.

Li ka édé pou mwen pou m sonje ke pandan ke benefis ki genyen nan fòmasyon fizik yo limite, benefis ki genyen nan fòmasyon espirityèl yo san limit. Sou jou sa yo lè mwen pa santi tankou lapriyè oswa li Pawòl Bondye a, Mwen kapab Fè tèt mwen sonje ke benefis la se pa ti piti oubyen pou yon ti tan. Li pa pral sèlman ede m 'nan semèn kap vini, li pral ede m 'nan lavi nan pwochen te. Sa a tout motivasyon an mwen bezwen.

    Trip thank you for this. For the past week I’ve been fearing death. I don’t know why but I do. I really needed to be reminded that heaven is the best thing ever and this earth won’t get me anything.

    Thanks for this bit of encouragement! It is easy for some of us to become obsessed with eating healthy and exercising. But do you spend more time planning your meals and at the gym, than in times of prayer and study of the Word? It’s easy to have your priorities messed up, even on the mission field.

    Blessings in Christ to all!

    mwen dakò. The spiritual fitness/exercise is FAR more important than any physical fitness/exercise, but I ALSO believe that both can be done at the same time as well. I know there is a fine line between working out for yourself and working out for God, but there is a difference (believe it or not). Working out for God, physically, includes the spiritual element. For instance, when you have a workout partner, you two talk periodically when you workout together. Imagine if, when you two talk, it isn’t about a pump, your muscles, elatriye. olye de sa, when you talk, speak from your heart, and have fellowship with one another in Christ. The physical working out may be a common interest for those in the gym, but if you add the spiritual aspect, your fitness with go to an unearthly level (right where we are supposed to be), spreading the love of Christ. Kolosyen 3:17

    It amazes me how The Lord speaks in so many different ways. I was wrestling with the thought ofI should work out todaybut was feeling like I fail at this area over and over again and somewhat feel it can be wasted time if it’s not something continuous in my life. Reading this blog was a reminder from God that He>I and when I focus on Him and train spiritually, I feel so much better and trust that it’s not time wasted. I think staying healthy is important but I know that digging into His word and seeking him is well worth every second of our life. Time with God is never wasted. Thanks for being obedient to what Christ has called you to share. Mwen te bezwen sa a. God bless You and your family Trip!

    Man this is awesome stuff, I love what you stand for. I love learning from your teachings in your music and now your book “Bon lavi sa a”.

    THANK YOU!

    Sa a te pè. The two things I hope to gain and retain this year and yet I struggle with the one that is far more important than the other. Mèsi Sòti a, your timely blogs have been very inspiring, and they constantly point me back to Superstar.

    Bro this is what I needed. I’ve been struggling and fighting with the spirit for the last couple of days. Just forgot to pray, read my bible, and even go to church. This is a wake up call. From now on I’m a changed man in Christ. I even thought God will n longer listen to me because of my ungodly life. Jesus died on the cross for me and I know I’m always welcome in his presence and he is just and faithful to forgive me from my sins.
    Bro I thank God for your life and the great work he he’s doing through you. God bless you for accepting his works.
    Stay blessed my brother.

    I think this is very relevant in our culture today. How often do you see people at the gym for hours? Sòti a, I work at the YMCA and I see the same people day in and day out for at least an hour of working out, but generally more than that. And it gets you thinking, there’s probably a lot of Christians that come into my Y (We’re the largest in Indiana), so how many of them are spending 1-2 hours a day engaging themselves in spiritual activity? This is relevant to me because it’s the call out I needed to get back in shape physically and spiritually. Thank you brother.

    Bondye beni,

    Hey,

    This is a word-for-a-season. In a culture there are so many social pressures to look good and for guys to be fit and ‘buff’, we can get so caught up in what we think we should be like, in what others tell us we need to look like.

    Saying that God thinks that workouts have limited value is spot on, compared to the eternity we can spend with God.

    This reminds me of David’s story when he is anointed king by Samuel 1 Samyèl 16). God says in verse 7, “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

    Bless you,

    Josh

    Really encouraging Trip! Anything that gets me closer to God truly brings me happiness and strengthen me! So thank you man. I really appreciate you. I’ll keep praying for you :)

    Trip I am big into working out, but I have to remind myself to read this post every once in a while. Helps keep me focused on what really matters

  12. BrianReply

    Wow as a fellow blogger I love the content of this. I am a workout buff but it comes easier than sometimes finding the time to pick up my Word daily. I then wonder why I don’t stand up to trials like I should. Awesome reminder. Mèsi Sòti a

  13. NjokiReply

    This is really encouraging and it has been something that’s been on my mind. I don’t read my Bible everyday, in fact, I could go for 2 oswa 3 days without getting in touch with God’s Wordbut now I know that I’m denying myself eternal benefits. It means so much to me that what I read today will help me next week or next month. I can’t rely on what I did last year, or last weekI’m working out for my eternity!!
    Godliness has value for ALL THINGS holding promise for both the present life and the life to come!
    Mèsi Sòti a Lee, for letting God work through youImma read the Word more! :)

    that was awesome message Trip, I have always wondered whether working out is wrong or not or simply unnecessary. Your analysis clears the air on that one. Thanx, keep BRAGING BRO!!
